Draft chatter: Could Alabama LB Mosley last until pick 34?

May 1, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT


The website Sports on Earth conducted a two-round mock draft with three of their football analysts each making every pick. The idea is that former Chicago Tribune writer Dan Pompei is supposed to figure out who the team is likely to select, former scout Russ Lande picks the player that the team needs and Mike Tanier of Football Outsiders and other websites tries to think of an out-of-the-box selection.

Scroll aaallll the way down to the Redskins’ top pick, the second of the second round, the 34th overall and you’ll find this trio of possible picks:

LB C. J. Mosley, Alabama—Tanier’s outside-the-box thinking here is displayed more in the fact that he has him on the board still. He’s probably a top-20 pick in many the eyes of many.

OT Morgan Moses, Virginia—This is Pompei’s “likely” pick. His logic is that after having invested so many picks in acquiring Robert Griffin III they should invest one in protecting him.

G David Yankey, Stanford—And Lande comes in with the “what they need” pick and it’s hard to argue that the Redskins could use a young stud who could possibly help man the interior of the line for the next decade or so.

Which one of these players would you like to see the Redskins take?

    Either of the two lineman but if I had to pick the guard from Stanford

    well oline is the top priority but lb and dline are second, secondary and maybe te are next then wr but not so much with the djax signing.
    guard or rt would be fine but lb at 34 would be an interesting choice and not out of question.
    what do you do if someone other than qb and rb slips down that rates higher than need do you stand pat or pull the trigger on bpa no matter what position the player is ?
    i guess we will see next weekend huh!!!

    They need to draft heavy for the Oline this year kinda like happened last year for the defensive secondary. Just my opinion. Get two or three O linemen as well as a couple prospects on defense for the D line or linebackers.

    Whoever is atop their board at #34. Which I think would be Moseley. If you draft for need, especially interior line, do it once in the 3rd or 4th round, and once only.

    please give us Moses!!give us a pair of bookends that we need the big dancing bear!!give Griffin more than 3 seconds to throw the ball!!and a big Mike goes down we have a legitimate backup!!protect the franchise player forget the defense!! if Griffin gets crippled again because we can’t protect him that would be worse than our defense being the last place!!!

      agree with that analysis completely, I wonder if the Skins do. Some media types like Chris Russell keep saying that their sources say Defensive Line is going to be the pick at #34 but as you say, Griffin being hurt would be worse than the defense being in last place. However, I don’t think tackle is a priority over the INTERIOR of the offense line.

      I would like to see Marcus Martin drafted at Center and Cyrus Richardson taken in the 3rd round. Two Massive offensive linemen to shore up the interior will be more beneficial than any other aspect of the team because Griffn will have more time to throw and Morris will have better blocking to run.

    If they take Moses from VA, I’ll puke. Terrible footwork and slow…wasted pick

    if they can get Richardson or James at RT in the 3rd, i’m ok taking a guard/center here. The only way i wouldn’t go with two lineman in the first two picks is if Mosely is available or Clinton-Dix. Can’t see these scenarios playing out so take two lineman! Archives
